    ABOUT FIELDING GRADUATE UNIVERSITY - Fielding Graduate University is an innovative global community dedicated to educating scholars, leaders, and practitioners in pursuit of a more just and sustainable world. We do this by providing exemplary interdisciplinary programs within a distributed and relational learning model grounded in student-driven inquiry and leading to enhanced knowledge.  Fielding has approximately 1,050 students and 176 faculty members residing throughout the United States and internationally. Please visit our website at www.fielding.edu to learn more.

    Summary - Core faculty members are expected to engage in three general areas of effort: to provide mentoring and educational experiences for students; to be productive in scholarship and practice; and to engage in governance and service to the School of Leadership Studies (SLS) and Fielding Graduate University.

    Faculty members supervise doctoral dissertations, teach course seminars that mix synchronous and asynchronous interactions, and offer in person seminars at two or three week long residential events per year.  (Note that all courses are currently taught at a distance due to the pandemic. Some in person events will resume at an unknown future date.) Faculty members also conduct regular meetings (currently via Zoom) with students and serve as their mentors. 

    These areas of effort include, but are not limited to, the following responsibilities:

    • Engage in collaborative education for self-directed adult learners.
    • Assess students' academic performance to achieve educational, personal and professional development goals.
    • Support students through individualized academic and professional feedback to strengthen doctoral-level knowledge and skills.
    • Remain productive in scholarship and practice to better serve students.
    • Engage in professional service to the HOD Programs and Fielding Graduate University that contributes to student achievement.
    • Engage in community, social, and organizational change action within the HOD Programs, Fielding, and in the larger societal context.


    We seek scholar-practitioners who: are preferred to be at least 5 years post-doctorate; have taught at the doctoral level, supervised doctoral dissertations, and have an active research program with a record of research/scholarly publications.

    Applicants must hold an earned doctorate to be considered as a faculty member in this multidisciplinary program. Examples of earned doctorates could be in the fields of psychology, sociology, education, anthropology, organization studies, organization development, communication, or a related field.
    Successful applicants will be teaching and advising research for the two HOD programs: Human Development PhD and Organizational Development and Change PhD. We are particularly interested in applicants with successful teaching, research or scholarship, and applied work in the areas of social and ecological justice,

    Special consideration will be given to those applicants who have the expertise or have published research in the fields of intersectionality, critical social theory, decolonization and feminist research, aging, consciousness studies, adult learning, adult development, social and organizational change, leadership studies, and coaching research. Expertise in both quantitative and/or qualitative research methods is necessary as evidenced by publishing in a refereed journal in the last eight years. 

    Doctoral faculty members are expected to maintain an active program of research and scholarship as well as participate in program and university committees. Applicants who can contribute to diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and mentorship are strongly encouraged to apply. To fulfill our goal of a more diverse faculty, preference will be given to candidates who have not earned their doctorate degree from Fielding.

    Candidates who wish to be considered for this doctoral faculty position must be able to show proof of the right to work in the U.S.
